14th Annual 24-Hour Video Race




14th Annual 24-Hour Video Race
Kicks Off March 28, 2015
Angelika Film Center at Mockingbird Station in Dallas



The 14th Annual 24-Hour Video Race, presented by The Video Association of Dallas, will commence at the Angelika Film Center, 5321 E. Mockingbird Land in Mockingbird Station, Dallas, at 11:59 pm Friday, March 27 with the race taking place all of Saturday March 28. It will end 24 hours later at 11:59 pm. Information, early registration and rules are all at http://www.24hourvideorace.com/ or email info@videofest.org.

“We moved the 24-Hour Video Race up to March this year so students who are participating more and more each year would have more time to do the Race before finals hit,” said Bart Weiss, artistic director of the Video Association of Dallas.

“And to keep things interesting, we’ve added some new twists this year. We’ll add a new element to the list of ‘Must Includes,’ a character. The character aspect will be like a bartender or a ball deflator,” Weiss continued. “We have also reconfigured our team structure to so that large teams are not penalized. It should be a fun race. Let the fun begin in March by signing up now.”


About the Race
Dallas film and video makers of all levels of experience are invited to participate in the race, both creatively and literally. Teams that do not make it to the finish line at midnight will not be included in the judging.

All teams will be assigned five critical elements that will be revealed Friday, March 27 at 11 pm at Angelika right before the official kick off to the Race. Those five critical elements are:
· a theme
· a prop
· a location
· a line of dialogue
· a character

Anyone with a camera and the willingness to race can participate. Past teams have included elementary school students to professional filmmakers. Student teams compete against other student teams and adult teams are categorized by team size rather than skill level.
